Market Segmentation: –

Based on products, the pharmaceutical filtration market is segmented into filters, systems, and other products. Filters segment accounted for the largest share of the pharmaceutical market, membrane filters are the key revenue contributors to this segment. Membrane filters are microporous plastic films with specific pore size ratings. These filters are used to separate contaminated particles from liquids. They are available in a variety of polymers, pore sizes, diameters, and surface types.

Based on technique, the pharmaceutical filtration market is segmented into microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and other techniques. The other techniques segment includes reverse osmosis and ion exchange. The nanofiltration techniques accounted for the smallest market share of this market in 2022, and this can be primarily attributed to the limited retention for salts and univalent ions by nanofilters; nanofiltration membranes being comparatively more expensive than reverse osmosis membranes.
